Reformation Day Activities - Loads of ideas, projects & why some Christians don't celebrate Halloween

Our family does not take part in Halloween celebrations for many reasons, but we do take part in Reformation Day, which we hold on the 31st! Here are some websites that will help you plan your own Reformation Day activities. If you, too, choose not to celebrate Halloween and would like to explain WHY you do this, here are 2 great books. Halloween - Is It For Real? and Mommy, Why Don't We Celebrate Halloween

Philippians 4:8 ~ Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.

Matthew 5:14-16 ~ Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

We do not celebrate Halloween, although we used to. I felt convicted about it a few years back and my husband agrees. :) Thank you for the book links, though! It's hard to explain to the children why soo many other children are doing Halloween and we aren't!
